Just adding more tears: A Monster Calls

I don’t have much more to add to Jackie’s review of A Monster Calls at all. Actually, I don’t even think I can see the computer screen. Sometimes you just need that kind of book to let it all out. I bought a box of Kleenex recently and for no real reason (well at the time), we aren’t big Kleenex box people around here. I needed it today though. It’s been well used now.

No, I don’t have much more to say other than you really do need to read this book. And you can watch this wonderful Book Trailer for A Monster Calls here.

I haven’t cried this hard since reading this book, oddly, another Young Adult tale, The Book Thief. The trailer for that wonder is here for your viewing as well. Of course, as with A Monster Calls, please read the books. Definitely worth every moment of your time.

    • You know all along, really, what is going to happen, but still, oh my word, the tears, the sorrow. My aching heart. Well, thank you Mr. Lelic, (and we will thank you again when we talk) and honestly thank you Aaron, because once again, I read a book based on your recommendation. A book I never would have dreamed of picking up, but discovering it was oh so very worthwhile.
